Part# 13-22417


This book will serve both EASA and FAA Part 147 schools as well as students and experienced technicians wishing a complete understanding of both basic and the most advanced helicopters from rotor and flight controls through all basic aircraft systems including electric, hydraulic, environmental, fire protection, as well as avionics and onboard maintenance systems, and more.

Note:The content and layout of this book is provided by TEC Aviation Academy of Copenhagen Denmark. It is unlike the others in the ATB Part 66 series as it reads more like a powerpoint presentation than a traditional textbook.
